TELUK INTAN: The postal and courier services provide strategic input for the development of digital and e-commerce economy in the country, said State Tourism, Arts, Culture, Communications and Multimedia Committee chairman Datuk Nolee Ashilin Mohammed Radzi here today.

Nolee said the growth of the parcel delivery segment was expected to continue in tandem with rapid growth of digital economy which required new investment to enhance operational capacity and thus create quality job opportunities.

She said the postal service landscape had changed with the emergence of competition from courier companies and rapid growth of digital communications, creating an impact on the way people communicate.

Apart from that e-commerce development had also opened up new opportunities for the postal service to sustain growth and remain relevant in the country, she said.

“The National e-Commerce Strategic Roadmap and Digital-Free Trade Zone announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak recently requires the postal and courier industry to come under the purview of the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC).

“This is aimed at implementing transformation initiatives to become ‘best in class’ and to increase the productivity level of every employee through continuous capacity building to achieve e-commerce targets,” she said in her speech in conjunction with the 143rd World Postal Day Celebration at the Teluk Intan Post Office which was also attended by Perak MCMC chief Hanita Izam Abdul Rahman, here today.
